This week has been majorly OFF for me.
What does that mean? I just don’t feel like myself! Each day I’ve been eating like they’ve just invented food and if I don’t get to it first there won’t be any left!
Ok maybe not that bad, but my cycle of when I’m hungry has shifted to morning and afternoon instead of afternoon and evening and it’s really making me go “HUH?!?!”
Monday I did water aerobics, but it was a very low impact day, after I felt too tired for abs or running so Julie and I chilled in the hottub. Maybe I was in too long because about 20 minutes into total body sculpt I felt like I would just collapse so I cleaned my equipment and went home.
Tuesday I was at Toastmasters. Speaking of…here are some pictures from the contest a few weeks back.
**me with the other evaluators. I have NO clue what I’m looking at?
**I just told John that I should string my certs together for a 3rd place bikini. This is why Rita looks annoyed, John looks like he might explode.
The president of the club (Rita), myself and I believe John is the Area Governor and former president. Also a fellow marathoner! Woot woot!
Wednesday I drove through the snow to meet up with Brian! We went “cruising in the Accord” hmm doesn’t work without the weird accent I say it in…anyway, he just bought a new Accord in this awesome blue color. He thinks it’s a sports car..I think it’s a family car with a mid-life crisis. That doesn’t change the fact that I like it, I just don’t find it sporty.
The two of us went up to The Q for a nice viewing of The Lake Erie Monsters! Sadly, they lost, but I was so excited since this was my first hockey game. James and I used to watch hockey in high school and college…I love it when they hurt each other!
Bobbie was working the game so I got to see her, which was awesome!
Today…I left work “early” AKA on time. Because my head felt cloudy and I felt a little like I might puke. Home again home again and into bed! A good little 1-2 hour nap and I felt SO MUCH BETTER. Let’s just hope I get to sleep here in a minute or too.
Now wait, wasn’t this post something about a THEME? Ok OK you caught me!
I applied for Team Marathon last week, and of course I am loyal to them from 2010 and sincerely HOPE I get to represent them in 2011.
That being said…most people don’t apply for only ONE JOB and so, I also applied for a new team being started this year. Team reGen!
What’s reGen? Aside from being an offical sponsor for the AHL…according to their site: http://www.regen2recover.com/
Powered by natural cocoa and the scientifically-recommended 3 to 1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein, reGen™ muscle recovery beverage has been clinically proven to improve muscle recovery by an average of 25 percent compared to the leading carbohydrate and electrolyte beverage1. Distributed by the Apure Foods Company, the reGen™ beverage has also been shown to provide a 9.7 percent average increase in endurance 1. For more information about the reGen™ beverage, including clinical testing background and research study results, visit regen2recover.com.
The reGen™ beverage is powered by natural cocoa, with more than two tablespoons (12 grams) in each 200-calorie, 11-ounce serving to provide more antioxidant power than that of many superfruits2. Research shows that consuming natural cocoa can help maintain healthy blood flow, which may enhance the delivery of carbohydrates and protein during muscle recovery, and may enable a more efficient removal of the “waste” products produced during exercise that can lead to post-training muscle soreness. 3 Many chocolate-flavored beverages utilize alkalized cocoa, for improved flavor, color and solubility; however, alkalization can significantly reduce cocoa’s antioxidant power. Scientists from the Hershey Center for Health and Nutrition™ worked with the reGen™ team to develop a unique patent-pending process that incorporates the large amount of natural cocoa found in each serving of the reGen™ beverage without resorting to the use of alkalized cocoa. The reGen™ beverage also contains the scientifically-recommended 3:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein, optimal for recovery.4 The reGen™ beverage is 99.9% lactose-free and is compliant with NCAA guidelines for nutrition for collegiate athletes. Each serving contains 35 grams of carbohydrates and 11 grams of protein comprised of whey and casein.
Now I LOVE me some chocolate milk after a race…so if this stuff is athletic chocolate milk I am SO GAME! The catch is my closest “market” is Pittsburgh, PA and I dunno if Akron is close enough for them. So check out the product…check out the site…and maybe just maybe you’ll be hearing more about them in the future!
